Menstrual Cycle Day 28


What is happening internally?

The corpus luteum continues to release high amounts of progesterone to maintain the uterine lining until the placenta takes over. The zygote (fertilized egg) is increasing in size and growing larger every day. The amounts of hCG are increasing, and are high enough to result in a positive pregnancy test. If conception did not occur, the amount of progesterone being released begins to drop due to the corpus luteum dying. The lining may begin to slough off.

Outward symptoms:

Basal body temperatures remain high above the coverline and may even steadily rise higher. Cervix may be low, firm and closed, or slightly raised and softer. Cervical fluid is dry or it may become creamy. You may experience bloating or water retention. You may experience a headache. You may have to urinate frequently and may or may not experience food cravings/aversions and fatigue. If conception did not occur your basal body temperature may be dropping down due to the corpus luteum dying. Cervical fluid may be creamy to watery and tan in color. You may have water retention, headache, moodiness, spotting and cramps. You may have bleeding start making this day 1 of a new cycle.

I'm 26. i had the mirena coil removed in january. i've had 1 period in february. i was 5 days long. i'm now on the 20th day of my cycle. i've been moody, hungry but bloated, tired and had lots of sex during my fertile days. i have 1 child. he's 8, but i have forgotten how it feels to be pregnant. can any one advise me when to test because with my son i tested it only came up strong line and faint pregnant line. i don't want to test to early.

This might be implantation bleeding if you have been trying to conceive.

If you're 76 pounds you likely need to gain weight to be healthy, conceive, and grow a baby. your body us saying it can't handle a baby!

Guest Mar 27, 2014 12:22:30 PM ET

She probably either meant 176 or 76 kilos...just saying a full grown woman weighing 76 pounds is unusual!

Ok so i am 29 days int my menstrual cycle and i am yet to have my period. i had intercourse on the 28 i believe of september and again on the 17 of october. i really cant say how i feel. its weird i feel as though my period will start but then i was constipated for about a week and decided to take a wash out now i just want to know i am just playing the wait game i guess. if my period doesnt come by the 20 i think i would take a test.
